I had a similar problem (one account works, others do not) and deleting a file labelled .esddsp_esddsp (or something similar) located in the account's home directory solved the issue.  However, you also will need the fix mentioned earlier regarding adding file  /tmp/.esd/socket . Just a shot in the dark.
